CNN is being responsible and reporting this in a very race neutral manner. I applaud their editorial choices in not fanning the flames.

That's because it was a black-on-white crime and that doesn't fit The Narrative. They'd prefer not to report it at all.

First thought was to put this in the "Stupid Stuff on FB" thread.

But it's too good.

The civil rights industry is up in arms and hoop'l'ee doo. Much ado much ado. Articles, threats, yelling, hands up . . .

I've seen this show before and its boring. Go away so we can focus on real news and not your pot of gold fantasies.

The St. Louis police chief is repeating that the murdered man was not targeted because he was Bosnian. I think this is a brilliant statement and also most likely true: he was targeted because he's white, not because he's Bosnian.

I find it highly unlikely that the attackers would even know that the white man was Bosnian. They probably never even heard of Bosnia.

See Grooming House thread. This PC ostrich cowardice is all too familiar.

Hey, you don't have to know where they are from to hate whatever crop of new immigrants are pushing into your neighborhood!

I have to say I am puzzled why the St. Louis mayor and police chief are claiming with such vehemence the hammer murder is not a hate crime prior to investigation. The police chief was saying this just hours after the event and I cannot imagine a thorough investigation had been completed. This isn't snark; I'm just wondering why they're so highly motivated to declare so quickly and firmly a group of minority kids, in a city rocked by racial protests, did not kill the white dood with hammers because he was white.

They called Al Sharpton for their marching orders and were instructed to refrain from calling this a hate crime.

Is there such a large population of Bosnians in St. Louis that "are you Bosnian?" is a question that legitimately needs to be asked? Seems like a fairly random nationality to target.

Apparently there's around 30k Bosnian immigrants in this particular area of the city, and as with any foreign ethnic group that moves in en masse and makes a better place/life for themselves, the original population of the neighborhood does not appreciate their presence.
